It's what happens when you start shouting at people on public mailing lists.

Let's assume, just for a moment, that rather than being a troll you're
just misguided, then here's how you could have dealt with this:

Hi guys,
I have this editing problem that I'm trying to fix <link>, but when I
try to do it with Potlatch all the nodes overlap when I zoom in. Am I
doing something wrong? What would really help is thinner lines on the
high zoom. I usually use JOSM, but I'm trying to help out a user who
has been using Potlatch.

There's an option to have thinner lines. Hope that helps.

Your reply:
Oh yes, thanks! Is there any way that could become the default?

See? Wasn't that much nicer for everybody?
